To mark the Bauhaus Centenary, Avanti’s Isokon Gallery is hosting an exhibition, celebrating the life and works of Bauhäusler George Adams (1904-1983).
George Adams, born Georg Teltscher in Vienna, studied in the Bauhaus under former Isokon resident Walter Gropius and after being sent to Barcelona, London and Australia, during the war, he became involved in military map making and pamphlet design in England. His work was featured in the Festival of Britain (1951) and as a prolific graphic designer and long standing teacher at the London College of Printing, he became an important figure in spreading Bauhaus teachings across Britain. After the war he also taught in the USA (MIT) and West Africa as Professor of Graphic Design in the new Department of Art at the University of Nigeria, Nsukka.
The Isokon Gallery is open weekends 11.00am – 4.00pm from 2nd March to 27th October. Free entry. The Isokon Gallery, Lawn Road, London NW3 2XZ.
